“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
Today is the last Monday of 2014. Including today, we have 3 days until the new year dawns. Finish strong! Throw off everything that hinders you! You will not step into 2015 with mindsets from 2014 that no longer serve you nor makes way for growth.
I’ve seen first hand how dangerous it is to finish “bad”. Finishing “bad” can hinder you from moving forward into the fullness of what God has in store for you! So here are a few tips to finish strong!
1. Step out of your comfort zone by choosing to deliberately remove barriers and break habits that block the flow of change and creativity!
2. Challenge your perception: You have to be willing to challenge how you currently see things, circumstances and people. To go where you have never been before and take your relationships to new levels and deeper in intimacy, sometimes you just need a new perspective. When you get a different perspective you get a different perception and understanding, compassion, love and even favor can then flow.
3. Be at peace with your pain and your past. That means forgive and let go! Focus on how you can help the situation move forward. Know that you wont always get the apology that you may feel you deserve. Don’t hold folks hostage with your expectations. Truth is we can’t make people change. But we are in control on how we deal with them. Be accountable, be willing and open to listen, speak the truth in love and demonstrate unconditional love. These are all attributes of who we are called to be…as children of God…peacemakers.
Remember, we cant make folks walk through an open door but at least when possible and through our actions we can let them know that the door is always open for change.
Do what you can and rest in the Lord! Because when God sees you doing your part, (being empowered by the Holy Spirit and thus obedient to His promptings) …then He will do His part and open doors that no man can shut.
Let us pray:
Father God, we thank you this morning for who you are! We praise you for what you have in store for us in 2015. May you be insanely glorified in and through our live’s. I believe that 2015 will be a year of unfathomed restoration! I declare that your people will recover double for their trouble! I release increase, supernatural blessings and favor upon every caller (and reader)! I declare every fragmented area be made whole in Jesus Name! May they recover for every generation in their lineage that the enemy has stolen from. I declare wholeness in marriages, in finances, in health, in relationships, in businesses and ministries! May new territory be claimed in your name God, souls be healed & delivered, generational curses be broken and the enemy put to shame!
Father God, your Word says that you knew us before we were formed in our mother’s womb! Bring us into the glory we shared before the world began. Let your wisdom overflow in and through us. Give us foresight to connect us with your vision of our future. Give us insight for understanding and oversight to put it all into context. Let your love dwell richly in our hearts and minds. I declare that the floodgates of heaven be opened over every caller (and reader). We overcome because greater are You, Lord who is within us than he that is in the world. We shall finish this year strong and walk into the fullness of your glory in the new year ahead.
We believe it, receive it, declare it and command it to be so!
In Jesus Name we pray! Amen, Amen, Amen!
